Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One

Star Wars Battlefront got plenty of fans excited last year, but upon arrival, the Electronic Arts games disappointed many, mostly due to the lack of single player options included with the title. While the game had much to offer in the multiplayer arena, many just weren’t impressed with what they were given for the expensive price tag that comes with video games nowadays. The folks at EA have been listening the best they can, and they have at least one update that will make players happy starting next week.

In addition, the DLC for Star Wars Battlefront keeps coming later this year. EA teased the forthcoming Death Star expansion pack that finally takes the battle to space in a quick new trailer, and they also announced that the final expansion pack for the game this year will be a Rogue One update. Find out more about the Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One update and more after the jump. Read More »
